Registration No: LS55 CNE
Chassis No: WDB2304672F114639
MOT: August 2024
Introduced at the September 2001 Frankfurt Motor Show, the R230-series of Mercedes-Benz's long-running SL range remained in production for ten years. Arguably the most accomplished two-seater Grand Tourer of its generation, the newcomer offered a blend of performance, ride, handling and refinement that few, if any, rivals could match. The SL 350 boasted a 0-60mph time of 7.2 secs and top-speed of 155mph from the 3724cc V6 (241bhp/258lbft) engine.
Manufactured in 2005, the SL 350 offered was supplied new to the United Kingdom, being first registered on the 31st of October that year. Finished in Iridium Silver metallic paintwork with Grey leather interior upholstery, the SL 350 was specified from new with climate control, 17-inch alloys, Sat-Nav, aluminium trim pieces, electric mirrors, and xenon headlamps. Retained in first ownership for some sixteen years, the R230 has had just two owners from new and is offered having covered a mere 34,500 warranted miles. A notably nicely presented R230, ‘LS55 CNE’ is understood to retain all of its factory paintwork.
Benefitting from improvement this year including new boot struts, brake fluid change, and re-gassing of the air-conditioning, the Mercedes is supplied by a documented service history with the service book that shows six services, and further servicing and maintenance invoices accompanying. Offered with a history file that contains the original book pack with stamped service book, a collection of previous MOT certificates, a selection of invoices, a no advisory MOT certificate until August 2024, a current V5C document showing two former keepers (the first owner had the vehicle registered in a business and then private name), and copies of the previous logbooks. Notably nice, low mileage and ownership R230s are beginning to become understandably collectable, and this example would be a fine addition to any collection.
